Privacy, transparency and daylight quality - what ALED Privacy-Plus offers 

Austrian technology company LightGlass convinced with its patented technology ALED Privacy-Plus, the new generation for self-illuminating glass with increased visual protection.

Architectural glass with integrated ALED technology offers artificial light in daylight quality at the push of a button even in darkness, which is not only of interest in northern latitudes, but also when it comes to living and working comfortably.

ALED Privacy-Plus, the new technology from LightGlass, also offers adjustable visual protection and the unique chance to fulfill both the need for complete transparency and absolute privacy.

The world's largest annual architecture and lighting trade show LightFair will take place in Philadelphia from May 9 to 11, 2017 and the Austrian company will be there to present its smart glass technology to an international audience, along with over 550 other exhibitors.

"We have already worked very successfully with different international partners, such as JELD WEN and SWISSPACER from the Saint-Gobain group. The co-operation with AAMSCO is now another strategic collaboration with a US company," explains Brettschuh.

This year, LightGlass will be announcing new industry co-operation partnerships in the automobile, windows & doors, branding & elevator construction areas.
